Through the Storm

from by Brian McGrath

lyrics

Through the storm, a lone lantern shone
Lit kerosene on an autumn dawn
Where you’re from ain’t always where you belong
We were born to roam and never be found

No parting words, nor lullaby
To soothe as we pass on from this life
Just sullen faces and eyes cast down
Another lost soul returns to ground

For all the plans we never keep
For all we talk we rarely speak
And what we are, hell we’ve always been
No true redemption without the sin

What binds us close, our bone and blood
And a lingering sadness we just can’t shrug
High above and down below
Side by side, still alone

The sea-storm night hangs heavy still
In time she’ll break you, impose her will
But through the storm, a lone lantern shone
Lit kerosene on an autumn dawn
